With my recent acquisition of both a Nintendo Switch and an Xbox One S, I have finally re-entered the world of video gaming on a regular basis, and it’s something that I’d definitely been missing. While my gaming interests have always gone in waves, the late 90s/early 00s were notable thanks to Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. As my wife can attest, those games were a huge deal for me back then – a series that I followed for quite awhile, often spending many late-night hours busting out the kind of tricks that I always wished I could do in real-life, but sadly lacked the skill to pull-off. As my life changed, I missed out on some of the later entries, but with talk of the series soon finding a rebirth, it was pretty exciting to learn that a comprehensive documentary about the games and the cultural phenomenon around them is now in-production. Pretending I’m a Superman: The Tony Hawk Game Story is currently seeking funding via Indiegogo, and the pitch trailer is a good one. Check this out…

From the developers at Neversoft, to the major skaters that were involved, all the major players are there, and this is shaping up to be one doc that I can’t wait to see. The filmmakers are shooting for a late 2018 release (following a festival run), but that all comes down to funding, of course. Keep an eye on Facebook for updates.
